Uterine cancer is the most common cancer of the female reproductive system in the United States. It accounts for six percent of all cancers in women in this country.

Uterine Cancer Diagnosis

Uterine cancer is diagnosed using the following tests and procedures:

  • Annual pelvic exam
  • Transvaginal ultrasound - a wand that makes sound waves is inserted into your vagina to create a video picture of your uterus and its lining.
  • Hysteroscopy - a thin, lighted tube with a tiny camera on the end is inserted to get a look at your uterus and its lining.
  • Tissue sampling (biopsy)
    • Taken from the lining of the uterus while in the doctor's office.
    • Surgical biopsy - This procedure is called dilation and curettage (D & C) where tissue is gently scraped from the lining of your uterus. The sample is later analyzed in a lab for cancer cells. Most D & Cs are done while you are under general anesthesia.
